City of Hoboken Introduces “Late Night” Parking Enforcement ShiftTweet
Hoboken, NJ - Wednesday, September 28th, 2011
In response to resident requests for improved parking enforcement services during evening and late night hours, the Hoboken Parking Utility will commence a third shift to extend into the early hours of the morning, beginning in October. Enforcement during these hours will be focused on abuse of limited resident parking space via permit parking regulations on residential streets, as well as various safety concerns that impede emergency response vehicles from navigating narrow streets. The new extended schedule also allows the HPU to relieve the Hoboken Police Department from assuming the responsibility of parking enforcement during hours when enforcement by HPU was previously not scheduled.
“We regularly hear from residents who feel that illegal parking goes unchecked in the late hours, especially on Friday and Saturday nights,� said Transportation and Parking Director Ian Sacs. �This additional shift will focus on addressing those concerns.”
The Hoboken Parking Utility has traditionally enforced parking regulations Monday through Saturday from 7:00 am to 10:00 pm. The new shift will improve evening enforcement and extend overall coverage through 2:00 am, including Friday and Saturday nights. Although HPU does not enforce parking regulations 24/7, it is important to note that these regulations are still in effect throughout the week and are regularly enforced by the Hoboken Police Department when HPU is not scheduled.
